Story : The man and his wife
Man had a friend, he visited once every year. One year he visited and knocked. Friend's wife replied "He is out to chop wood." and then burst with her anger towards her husband.
As the man waited outside, his friend returned after a while, surprisingly carrying the chopped wood on the back of lion. They entered home, the friend ordered the lion to go back, and then had meal together and talked, all while the friend's wife curses from behind and the man replying nothing.
The man was astonished watching how much patience his friend had.
The man visited again. But first he visited the jungle to watch how his friend was coping with the lion. He was astonished to watch the lion is now wild, and everyone in the jungle scared of it.
He went back to his friend's home, and knocked. He heard a very polite voice of his wife welcoming him in and telling him that his friend is in the jungle and will return shortly.
Surely he did, carrying the wood on his own back visibly tiered and in hardship.
They entered home, had launch and talk. The man finally asked his friend what happened?
He replied, "My wife was bad mannered. And because I was patient on it, Allah rewarded me making the animals in the jungle obedient. She died last year and I married a new woman who's good mannered. But as a result I have lost the reward which God had provided me previously."
The man said, "I visited the jungle a while ago and watched that lion. It was wild, everyone scared of it."
Friend replied, "True. Previously I was scared at home. And Allah made the jungle peaceful for me. Now I am in peace at home, but then Allah has made the jungle scary for me."
Lesson : Don't worry, don't complain and be patient. Allah will compensate you on some other side, for that He didn't provide you on one side.
That's what I understood from the Arabic of the video attached.
Good lesson for our many brothers that have something to complain on their wife. And our would-be-bridegrooms that worry too much on their future as to get stunned.
Lesson on many sides should I say.
